Richland's refund policy for credit classes is published in its entirety in the online Richland College catalog.
Dropping a Class: Means dropping one or more classes for a given semester while remaining in others within the Dallas County Community College District.
Withdrawing From Classes: Means to officially drop all courses for a given semester within the Dallas County Community College District.
Students who officially drop a portion of their classes or withdraw from the college may be refunded a percentage of the total tuition paid on semester length classes, according to the following schedule:
|100% refund||Before August 25|
|70% refund||August 25 - September 11|
|25% refund||September 12 - 17|
|No refund||On or after September 18|
If your class does not start on the first day of the semester and end on the last day of the semester, your refund dates could be different than the ones listed above. Please contact the Admissions Office for these dates.
NOTE: DCCCD has partnered with Higher One, a financial services company, to process and distribute refunds and disbursements to most credit students and financial aid students.
For further details about how to set up your Higher One card, visit the Disbursements and Refunds for Credit Students page or the Refunds for Continuing Education Classes page for non-credit classes. Refunds are not issued in cash. If a payment was made by credit card, the refund may be issued back to the credit card unless the student is receiving financial aid. All refunds may take up to 30 days to process.
Richland College reserves the right to assign a different instructor to teach a course after publication of this class schedule. Such changes are not grounds for a refund. All Richland College faculty are qualified to teach in their field.
